Karen's Doodles Challenge 35 - Give Thanks

This week we have a new hostess, Nancy at Karen's Doodles Challenge blog and she has given us a theme challenge...

Give Thanks
This can be Thanksgiving, a thank you card or what you are thankful for, you decide.  Since the Holiday season is fast approaching, here is something I am thankful for.....



For my card, I used Karen's Doodles Baby Jesus.  I sized the image to fit my Dies Direct French Flare die, then printed it onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.   Copics used:
Baby - E000, E00
Hair - E31, E33
Wrap - B000, B00
Straw - Y21, YR23
Manger - E41
Shadow - E51
Star - Y11
I computer generated the saying and used my Dies Direct Little Stackers French Flair to cut it out.  I airbrushed B02 around both die cuts.  I added lots of Stickles to the card, on the DP from Chatterbox on the center of each pattern, all the way around each of the die cuts and in the center of the star.  Finished size is 6: square.

Won't you please join in on the fun? You could win....
